New for 2019, Vaughn Custom Sports has introduced their brand new adaptation in the Ventus line. Coming in with the Ventus SLR2 Pro Carbon Senior Goalie Chest & Arm Protector, Vaughn continues to provide a lightweight and protective chest protector with the ideal range of motion for today’s goalie.
Looking at the chest portion of the Vaughn Ventus SLR2 Pro Carbon, extra-large shoulder floaters with cushion air padding are provided to keep the shoulders square and add protection as well as give a wide profile to cover more net naturally. The floaters include suspender straps to provide a placement area for goalies who wear suspenders over the chest protector.
Further on the chest of the SLR2 Pro Carbon, a long carbon insert sits on the sternum pad and covers down toward the abdomen to provide central protection to the unit. The lower body is composed of HD protection and carbon inserts along with a large mid belly flap that has length adjustment options.
Next on the arm portion of the Vaughn SLR2 Pro Carbon, the arms are made up of a mesh material that provides mobility and a quick break in time. The bicep and forearms are molded plastic with foam and added carbon inserts creating a thinner shape at the wrist which ultimately allows for better integration with the glove and blocker.
Looking at the elbows, there will be a “no gap” arm floater with molded side elbow caps for mobility and a four point adjustable elbow pad for a customizable fit. This defined arm shape allows the goalie to move their arms tight against the body to help reduce holes. Moving down the arm, the forearm portion features added padding on the back and a tapered shape to slim up the cuff to provide mobility for easy rotations on the glove and blocker during key saves.
On the back, Vaughn features a full adjustable back plate with rotational buckles that connect on the goaltender’s sides that help create premium mobility between the chest and back portions. HD foam has been utilized on the protection aspect of the back plate to give the goaltender added protection.
In comparison to the Vaughn SLR2 Pro Senior, the SLR2 Pro Carbon features a domestic build with carbon material and higher quality construction.
If you are an elite-level goalie looking for a lightweight chest and arm protector that is designed for mobility, the Vaughn Ventus SLR2 Pro Carbon Senior Goalie Chest & Arm Protector is the unit that will write “Your Story”.
